Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word.
Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it--any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.
Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It's the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn't possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.
The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.
Well, I have just discovered another great author :) and I'm very happy about it! This was a great book, it moved quick, I loved the characters, great story, trifecta!
Sidney is just trying to live life without the horror of what was done to her haunting her. Taking it day by day even after all these years, trying not to let it get the best of her. When her best friend Millie convinces her to go on a blind date, Sidney thinks she died and went to heaven. A gorgeous guy who she instantly is attracted to makes her think it's finally her lucky day. Ordering a glass of wine and flirting in just the first couple of minutes, and then it all goes to pieces when Millie comes running shouting "there you are!" Poor Sydney is stunned, she was at the wrong table just thinking the rest hadn't arrived yet.
It only goes downhill from there. The dip-wad who is her date makes her want to scream, she leaves the restaurant and finds Mr. Hotty outside with his car that won't start. Peter is just too good to be true, she gives him a lift home, things get a bit hot and heavy, but before anything can happen he tells her he can't do this. Poor Sydney is mortified and humiliated. She wonders what she could have done. Things go from bad to worse when the Professor she ta's for dies and low and behold, who is his replacement? Why Peter of course.
You travel this very tough road with them and find out things aren't all that ok for Peter either. There isn't any hot and heavy love scenes, but BOY the tension is so very thick you can cut it with a knife!! My heart ached for both of them and I just got lost in this wonderful book. The only drawback? I have to wait to see what happens between them with #2 which comes out in June.
